You can never have too many picture fames and with these little fabric-covered frames even 
the smallest snapshots can be beautifully displayed. Be bold with your choice of main 
patterned print and select simple coordinating fabrics. Pulp board picture frame blanks 
available from many craft stores and make the perfect base.

Step 1 — Fabric Frames 

• Use a craft knife to cut around the 
sides and bottom of the frame to 
separate the back panel if 
necessary. Cut a piece of fabric 
larger than the frame and draw 
around the frame on to this farbic 
using a vanishing marker. 

Step 2 

• When using bold print fabric, 
decorate by adding seed beads and 
sequins, stitching them around the 
area that will cover the frame.

Step 3 

• Draw a cross in the centre of the 
fabric, to mark out the frame 
window. Cut diagonally from corner 
to corner to leave four triangular 
flaps. Use double-sided tape to 
stick the fabric to the frame. Fold 
the overhanging fabric over the 
edges to the back of the frame and 
secure with tape. 

Step 4 

• Cover the inside edges of the 
frame with ribbon to hide any raw 
edges at the inside seam. Cut out a 
piece of coordinating printed paper 
and stick on the back panel using a 
glue stick.

Step 5 

• Use bold printed fabric to make yo- 
yos for your frame. If you don't 
have a yo-yo maker, cut a circle of 
fabric about 20.3cm (8in) in 
diameter. Fold the edge over by 
6mm (1/4in) and sew a running 
stitch around the circle. Pull the 
thread to gather up the edge and 
secure with a small stitch. Press 
flat with an iron. 

Step 6 

• Stick the front of the frame to the 
back along the side and bottom 
edges using either strong glue or 
double-sided tape. Arrange three 
yo-yos in the bottom corner of the 
frame and secure in place with 
double sided tape.
